LEBANON, PA—May 18, 2020—REGUPOL, a leading manufacturer in sports and athletic flooring products, today announced it is increasing production of its REGUPOL Aktiv & REGUPOL AktivLok to meet the growing demand of the home fitness market.
“Regular exercise has many health benefits including relieving stress and is an important part of many people’s routines. With most gyms closed and the virus keeping everyone indoors, consumers are turning to home equipment to stay fit while confined,” said Matt Montano, REGUPOL Sales Manager for the sports division. “Since the onset of the pandemic in March, sales of our REGUPOL Aktiv and AktivLok fitness flooring has increased by 330%.”
REGUPOL Aktiv is ideal for use under cardio and strength machines and is available in custom-cut lengths, 3 thicknesses, and 28 colors. For the average homeowner, REGUPOL Aktiv can easily be installed, requiring little to no installation.
REGUPOL AktivLok 24"x 24"x 3/8" interlocking tiles easily lock together for a virtually seamless appearance and fit every space. Available in 5 standard color options—Jet Black, Gray Hound, Jayz Blue, Titan Tan, and Firestorm Red—AktivLok offers homeowners enhanced shock absorption in light to moderate weight-lifting areas and the perfect DIY solution. AkitvLok is designed to be loose-laid (no adhesive needed).
“Choosing the right fitness floor for your home is unlike flooring in any other area of your home,” continued Montano. “A great floor needs to protect the equipment and subfloor, provide a level of safety, absorb the impact of dropped weights and one often overlooked function of a gym floor is keeping equipment in place. Our fitness flooring has the qualities homeowners seek; it’s durable, easy to install, looks great, and it’s got grip.”
All REGUPOL fitness floor solutions are composed of up to 100% post-consumer tire rubber and post-industrial EPDM rubber. To learn more about REGUPOL Aktiv and REGUPOL AktivLok, visit the REGUPOL website.
